NOTES: Any race that sees five of a 15 runner field coming from one yard is filed under "FARCE" at this end. Appropriately enough though, one of the Gordon Elliott "team" is called ITS ALL GUESSWORK, it sits third best, is a Market Mover and Davy Russell, who is top jockey here and has a 31% strike rate for the trainer at this track, is on board this one.

I'll just have a "fun sized" 20/80....or a top three dutch....because Mr J J Codd rides OUT SAM for the same trainer and he has a 38% strike rate for Elliott!

We could, of course, all end up on POORMANS HILL....yep, another appropriately named Elliott runner!

My top rated was beaten into third by the winner of this years Arkle, PUT THE KETTLE ON....but that was over a trip a mile shorter than this? Since that narrow defeat he has been beaten 21 lengths, 21 lengths and 81 lengths....that last defeat coming over this trip?

Nah....just a 20/80 IT'S ALL GUESSWORK....because that's exactly what it is.

NOTES: The Racing Post VERDICT starts, "A modest looking contest"....code for dross.

If someone put a gun to my head and said I have to pick one I'd just say, "pull THE TRIGGER"....oh look, a coincidence bet! Probably as good a way as any to find the winner of this!

20/80 THE TRIGGER

This horse has been doing all his recent running in Scotland, he's 11 years old, and all his winning has been done in the summer!

It is what it is.
